Appearances in Go, Diego, Go!


Baby Jaguar has tan fur, with a brown pattern. His eyes are light brown with a black pupil.


  • Baby Jaguar appeared on many episodes of Go, Diego, Go!.
  • Baby Jaguar is Go, Diego, Go!'s equivalent of Boots because he is usually Diego's assistant like Boots is Dora's assistance.
  • He is the only forest friend character to physically age in the Dora and Friends: Into the City!. All of the other forest friends remain the same design in the original series. However, in the episode Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure they have shown to age.
  • Baby Jaguar did not talk during Seasons 3 and 4 on Dora the Explorer (all he does is meows and sometimes roars), but did on Go, Diego, Go! and later episodes of Dora the Explorer. However, he technically first spoke on Dora the Explorer in Dora's World Adventure!.
  • Baby Jaguar appeared in the Dora and Friends: Into the City episode "For the Birds". In this episode, he's grown into an adolescent jaguar and is now called Jaguar instead of "Baby" Jaguar because he is not young anymore.
  • For some odd reason in "For the Birds" Jaguar's tail is white on the end. Unlike the original series, the tip of his tail was brown.
  • Koda Gursoy, who did the voice of Boots from Dora the Explorer in Season 8, also voices this character as well as other rainforest animals, including the Bobo Brothers.
  • Rescue, Rescue, Rescue is the only episode where he appears without Diego.
  • In Boots' Special Day, Baby Jaguar did not appear in person, but he did appear in the picture map and picture pop-up sequence.
  • He never appeared in any Season 1-2 episodes (excluding the intros of Whose Birthday is It? and The Lost City).
  • In ABC Animals, there was a jaguar that resembles him. It is possible that he is part of his family.
  • His first voice actor, Thomas Sharkey, also does the singing voice of Austin from the Nickelodeon show, The Backyardigans and Shovel from the season 6 episodes of Blue's Clues.
